I fell in love with this book by Melissa Clark the moment I opened and begin flipping through the pages. I want to make and eat almost every recipe. The photos are so gorgeous I want to lick the pages. Most of the recipes are great for busy work night meals. A complete recipe is on one page, no turning back and forth while cooking. This is a book I will cook from often. They are not the same old recipes you often see over and over in many books.
I decided to dig right in and begin cooking. For my first dive I made Black Bean & Roasted Poblano Quesadillas, which daughter and I loved.
Next I made Fresh Corn Cakes which were devoured by my daughter, son, hubby and myself. I used frozen corn and grape tomatoes. The fried sage leaves lend so much flavor. I can’t wait for fresh garden corn and tomatoes to make these again as I know if possible they’ll be even better.
Next up was Kimchi Pork Chops. Wow! Loved the combination of flavors in the kale served with the pork chops. Kale, green onions, Kimchi, Fish Sauce, Sake, and Brown Sugar. After the pork chops are browned they are nestled back into the kale mixture and covered and cooked together. Hubby, son and I had a delicious supper that night. I just warmed up some leftover creamed cheese mashed potatoes and supper was ready in no time.
So looking forward to many more delicious meals from this book. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an interesting and inspiring cookbook to get you into the kitchen and cooking.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
